Special Education evaluations, assessments and meetings require not only educational but also legal, medical, social, and cultural knowledge. Medical Interpreters are more and more requested to perform this kind of interpretation due to their knowledge and preparation to accurately convey medical information to all parties involved.  

Learning objectives:

  • Learn about Special Education, Learning Disabilities, and what does “a child with disability” mean.
  • Show medical interpreters the great opportunity that exists to interpret within the educational environment to better assist families during the whole special education process.
  • Review the interpreter’s role, scenarios and vocabulary.



Ivonne graduated from the Iberoamericana University in Mexico City with a Bachelor's Degree in Graphic Design.  In 2010 completed a Master’s Degree in Specialized Translation at the UVIC University in Barcelona, Spain.  Ivonne also completed studies in other areas in Toronto, Canada and Geneva, Switzerland.  Ms. Ferrer career as interpreter, gets complemented with her volunteer work with the West Orange Special Education Parent Advisory Council in New Jersey and the IMIA Education Committee.  She also volunteered in the past with the United Nations Office and the World Intellectual Property Organization in Geneva, Switzerland.
